Editors' Review

IcoFX allows users to create custom icons using a variety of tools. The program's intuitive interface and many features make it a great choice for creating icons.

Much of the program's interface will look familiar to users who have experience with Microsoft Paint, although IcoFX is a little more polished. The program displays content in seven panes, all of which can easily be enabled or disabled under the View menu. One pane helpfully includes a tree layout of the user's computer files, while another holds a preview of the contents of a selected folder. This makes it easy to browse through your computer and find the files you'd like to work with. Users can start with a preselected image or create icons from scratch, and it's easy to do both. The online Help file gives detailed descriptions of the program's functions and also offers a set of tutorials. The program includes all of the standard image-editing functions that one would expect, along with a few standouts. Users can easily convert Macintosh icons to Windows icons, and vice versa. The work area can be viewed at an impressive 10,000 percent, allowing users the ability to do very detailed editing. We also liked program's powerful opacity options. The program is easy enough for novices to use, but it contains features that will be appreciated by more-advanced users as well.

IcoFX is free, and it installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users who are looking for a powerful yet easy-to-use icon editor.

    "A free trial for spyware/malware?!?"

    October 14, 2013   |   By nb_cis190

    Version: IcoFX 2.5

    Pros

    I did not even install the software. I stopped after I read their Privacy Policy!!!

    Cons

    READ THEIR PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY! It was the part about "our software will be collecting your personal information from your computer" and "do not attempt to use a malware detection routine on this software" that alarmed me. The company is located in Europe. How would the authorities prosecute them if they did something underhanded? What do they want with my personal information anyway? I'll pay for something off the shelf at Best Buy b/c this product is NOT worth it! And it's NOT free. I think that's their strategy to get it installed on as many machines as possible.

    Summary

    I did not even install the software. I stopped after I read their Privacy Policy!!!
